Book Description

8 Aug 2013
Food for Thought: Quick and Easy Recipes for Homeschooling Families is a cookbook that can stimulate thoughtful discussion while cooking. Each chapter is introduced with a Food For Thought homeschooling activity. Many of the quotes accompanying each recipe come from people we studied, books we read, or from the Bible. All of the recipes are easy and inexpensive, “a spice of variety.” One chapter is devoted to the young cook. My hope is for homeschooling families to make fond memories in the kitchen that will be remembered long after the food is eaten. The best recipe of all is love from the heart wrapped in prayer.

5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful cookbook filled with easy recipes and tasty wisdom 11 Oct 2013
By Carol Ann - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Although I didn't home school my sons--I was a public school teacher--I love this cookbook by author Lorilyn Roberts. I love the easy recipes,as well as the food for thought. I am a collector of quotes and this book is chock full of them to inspire anyone.

Whether you home school your children, or yours have left the nest, you will find lots of wonderful recipes to create in your own kitchen. I will be trying some of these recipes with my grandchildren. Thank you Lorilyn for such a delightful book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nuggets of Practical Guidance 3 Nov 2013
By Martin Roth - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm not a homeschooler, and I seldom cook for my kids (who are now adults). But I have read and enjoyed other books by Lorilyn Roberts, so downloaded this one too. The recipes certainly look good, though be warned: the photos that accompany each dish are honest and gritty, not the glossy and idealised "food porn" that you are accustomed to seeing in commercially published recipe books or in food magazines. But I found myself drawn to something else. The author provides inspiring quotes throughout the book. And more compelling than that, she offers nuggets of practical guidance on how your kids can help the starving of the world. For that alone, I would highly commend and recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Cookbook 30 Oct 2013
By C. Brown - Published on
Whether for homeschooling families or not, this is a wonderful addition to the cook who's interested in some new and creative recipes. This book includes main meal dishes, desserts and salads as well as soups and ideas that could be used for party foods. The cover is attractive and draws the eyes and really enjoyed the "food for thought" sections. Great little book and I'd like to encourage everyone to check it out. Well worth your time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Food for Thought indeed. 15 Sep 2013
By Eliza E. - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Soaked in joy and perseverance.
Stirred with humility and panache.
Sprinkled with love and best wishes.
Presented with ability and care.
Served to nurture and mature.

We can almost smell the cooking pots in this the latest of Lorilyn Robert's books worth having.

This quote from Lorilyn serves to remind us all: "With God's help anything is possible. The best recipe of all is love from the heart wrapped in prayer."

4.0 out of 5 stars Recommended! Great Recipes for Homeschool Families and Others 20 July 2014
By Teri Hanna - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Great recipe book for homeschool families and also for those on the run. We are a homeschool family-so this is perfect for us! Lorilyn Roberts has put together a winner! In this book you will find super easy and inexpensive recipes for the whole family. The recipes have lots of variety from recipes for the young cook to a Mom busy teaching kids at home who is excited because the crockpot is full of a delicious and nutritious dinner that does not need much tending.

I enjoyed the inspirational quotes between recipes-gave one food for thought such as the quote from Mother Teresa.

I loved seeing the pictures for each recipe-it gives me an idea if it is appetizing to me. Also enjoyed finding the extra links for things like World Vision, Clean Water for others, Food Storage for tough times, and Samaritan's Purse which provides shoe boxes for children for Christmas--ideas for my child to participate in helping others so we are not self centered and selfish.

You will find these and many more recipes inside:
Spaghetti casserole
Tuscan Chicken in a Crockpot
Chili in a Crockpot
Pasta Salad
Recipes for Young Cooks
Homemade Salad Dressing
Cheese Torillas
Trail Mix
Crazy Cupcakes
Recipes for Tight Budgets
Homemade Pizza
Thai Peanut
Cheese Potato Soup
Salads for Hot Days
Greek Chicken Salad
Chocolate Eclairs
And extra recipes are included
Spinach Party Dip
Buffalo Cheese Dip in the Crockpot

I recommend this book!
